Dr. Flinn ;
May 2 , 2015 the passing of Ben E. King. He was the lead singer with " The Drifters " after Clyde McPhatter was no longer with the group. The Drifters were on the Atlantic record label. It took me some time to find this single , at first I looked among my Drifters records under "D " then later found it filed under " K " I did not remember that Atco record label  was a division of Atlantic records  The Drifters / Atlantic records after Clyde McPhatter  left did not credit Ben E. King as the lead singer .
This may be why he went solo . " Stand By Me " a Leiber-Stoller Production  Record McFarland collection  - Steve
